Event Details

This year’s Keenan International Lecturer will be Dr. Denisa Wagner. Dr. Wagner received her Diploma of Biochemistry from the University of Geneva, Switzerland and PhD in Biology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She served on the faculty at the University of Rochester, NY and Tufts University School of Medicine before coming to Harvard Medical School in 1994. Dr. Wagner is currently the Edwin Cohn Professor of Pediatrics in the Program for Cellular and Molecular Medicine and the Division of Hematology/Oncology at Boston Children’s Hospital. For many years, her laboratory’s research has focused on adhesion molecules, the regulation of their expression, and their function in normal physiology and in pathological situations. They have engineered mice lacking platelet, endothelial, or leukocyte adhesion receptors and studied their phenotypes. One of Dr. Wagner’s main interests is the interplay of inflammation and thrombosis, in particular, the role of platelets and neutrophils.
